Summary

  • Describes the land ethic of conservationist Aldo Leopold as a necessary step in insuring the future for diversity of nature's plants and animals. Tells that community conservation is central to the current debate on environmental policy, and looks at how people living near areas of rich natural heritage in Wisconsin, Belize, and Russia are exploring new ways for natural and human communities to co-exist. Includes discussion of the Community Baboon Sanctuary in Belize, where residents have made a commitment to share their living space with black howler monkeys (Alouatta pigra).
